    Question How do you cook a deer round steak?

    I was given 2 deer round steaks. They said to make sure I cut out all tendons and bones before cooking or it will be to gamy tasting.

    How do I cook these so they are yummy

    I cook them just like beef. Usually as a swiss steak at my house. In IN the deer are all corn and bean fed anyway so it tastes pretty much like beef. I always heard plenty of onions gets rid of gaminess.

    I generally broil my steaks would that work? Also what is Swiss steak?

    We generally have ground deer and I cook it in chili, Deer chili, Yum.

    I cook them like I would any other steak. I place them in a bit of water, add some onion soup and sliced onions and cook them in the oven until done. Sometimes I will also add a can of diced tomatoes.

    I've also done them in a slow cooker as well.

    I cook them the same way as homesteadmamma. I let it simmer for hours though and that way the meat falls apart. I LOVE deer meat! Enjoy!

    Default Deer

    a splash of apple cider vinegar gets rid of the gaminess....I usually crock pot them and I use:

    can of tomato soup
    one onion
    2 cloves of garlic
    a couple of splashes of italian dressing
    and a couple of soup cans full of water

    Swiss steak is basically what Homesteadmama does. Sometimes I add cream of mushroom too.

    I cook venison steaks either in the oven or in my crockpot. I like to add a can of cream of mushroom soup, salt and some chopped onion. In the crockpot I let it cook all day on low. In the oven I put it in a Brown In Bag and cook it at 350 for about 2 hours.

    I soak our venison in 7 up for the thicker pieces. Cooking them in the crockpot does wonders. Onion soup mix seems to be our favorite flavoring to add to the crockpot for deer meat.

    DH likes the Brown It bags and I like the crock pot.
    Italian dressing is good for offsetting gameness, but people tend to over-do it and then that's all I can taste...

    The big thing about deer is it's much leaner that most beef cuts. You can dry it out pretty easy when cooking it. I always sear mine really well in a HOT pan, on all sides, then cook it in the oven, in the crockpot, or even fry it just until my meat thermometer says medium rare to medium. Oh and I also recommend a liberal shake of sea salt and olive oil on the outside before you sear. Enjoy!

    Vinison is just about the only meat we eat. I cook it just as I would a beef round steak. We (the kids) love steak fingers or chicken fry. I hope your's was/is tasty.
